Activists Urge Biden to Eschew Fossil Fuel-Friendly Former Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz in Transition, Cabinet Teams

Originally published at http://www.commondreams.org/news/2020/11/16/activists-urge-biden-eschew-fossil-fuel-friendly-former-energy-secretary-ernest

This DemocraticTM Party’s Charade

First, it’s: Vote the Lesser Evil.
Next, it’s: Suspend you’re criticisms and give him a chance
Then, it’s: Don’t ask for perfection, don’t let the Perfect be the Enemy of the Good
Then it’s back to: Vote the Lesser Evil
All this while constantly moving to the right.

So this time it’s “URGE”. One other time it was “DEMAND”. Sometimes it is “PUSH”! Like any of that will make any freaking difference!!!

Biden, the American people have been f#€ked for the past 4 years. Do not allow us to be fracked anymore.

Fracking is for the unimaginative who think that business as usual can continue ad infinitum on a finite planet. Send such to physics classes where they can learn thermodynamics and make sure they take the right mathematics courses, so they don’t just assume that all will be OK in the end (after they are dead, being the operation definition of such). Might want to round out their education with some ethics. Just saying.

Joe has been eschewing the welfare of the citizenry for 47 years ,why not another four if you make it Joe.

We can almost assuredly count on Joe to kick the can down the road and choose too big to fail over environmental consciousness.

GOP = die quickly
Democrats = die slowly

Heads we lose, tails we lose.

Moniz is an earth-killing mutant who looks like an old, degraded version of Javier Bardem’s wicked character in No Country for Old Men…and he has the morals of that character too.

Everything you post is verbatim from the Trump/GOP Traitor Talking Points.
Trump has done more to destroy this country’s environmental regulations, agencies, endangered species, science base, public lands, water, and air in four years than any other president.
I’m sick and tired of people like you coming here to spew Republican lies!

Right, PB. Like he is going to make any difference in the lives of us regular folks.

Unless Biden launches Nuremberg style trials on January 21 to bring Trump, his appointees and other enablers to justice, it won’t matter who Biden appoints, the GOP will have a green light to push further to the right, becoming more powerful with each passing day while the Democratic Party fades to irrelevancy.

And so the real struggle begins anew.

If nothing else this endless barrage of wishlists for Biden serves to highlight just how divorced your average self proclaimed “progressive” really is from political reality.
Little different from Trump’s cultists at the end of the day, just on the opposite side of the spectrum.

When I first saw Moniz I thought, “Holy shit, Obama’s hired an Ooompa Loompa!”

Your’re right. I was wondering who he reminded me of.

Thing is, Joe’s not even much of a place-marker, nor Harris, a figurehead? Those insisting we simply LIE about DNC™ installing DC’s Blob, to feed again upon our most vulnerable, blaming our poor victims over & over (deluded, that WE are somehow above the worst repurcussions?) I’m not seeing any of this resulting in a happy ending for we the peons?

Yes, but we all knew the DNC would never give up on the pro-corporate money, and their constant-compromise-to-lose policies of the 'centrists of ‘our’ party, (Biden included), that used to actually ‘represent’ the people over the pro-corporatists greed-heads, like the Clintons, the Pelosis, and the ‘Bidens’ - Never forget that Biden comes from Delaware, the most corporate friendly state in America. Of course there is still hope Biden, in his ripe old-age can be flipped to be much more progressive, but to be honest I don’t hold much hope for ‘much more’ - Any would be a win.

I don’t think there is any basis to imagine a person is a Republican just because he paid attention to and can remember the past. While I get your point that a knowledgeable person is unlikely to be Democrat, there is way more room on the Left for a non-Democrat than on the Right.

Some Democrats seem to believe that policy is a random thing, and each new day brings a new spin of the policy wheel. They are every bit the impediment to progress that the MAGA-hat-sporting population is.

Nothing will change until those in charge are forced into it. The time for petitions never was.
